    And just as in the 1930's we don't want to know about it. And we certainly don't want to do anything about it.

    Good heavens, today we type in a healthy way, heaven forfend that we should type in a discriminatory way.

    And genocide? Never heard of it. It only happens in foreign country far away. Far too far away to bother us.
    Ok ok, you have a point.
    But what is the solution to it? Mix everyone up like Alexander the great tried to do?
    I love what his failed attempt.

    1 flag

    No war.

    But the issue is people/humans can't live without discrimination (i DON'T mean in an unhealthy way.) Humans just can't. Unless they have a personality which transcends what we knows which exists in us.

    Lets just take a race and analyze this


    We will take Muslims. there are so many muslim countries in the world. but some of them fight one another. there is and always will be severe competition among groups and therefore countries, even if they belong to the same RACE.

    So racial discrimination (or just discrimination) will always be there.
    Even if we belong to the same RACE. All of us.

    Discrimination is here to stay!
    But will be less radical in the future (I hope.)

    Why is the title "break"? I suppose it was quite intuitive for everybody that blacks have darker skin because the sun is more intense in the south. I mean, I don't think anybody believed that there was any other reason for the difference.

    Apparently Darwin did.

    It was only in 1948 that we signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for the first time in human history. And we would expect that discrimination would not disappear overnight. Rather we need to work long and hard for a long time using our best tool, liberal democracy, to abolish all discrimination and bring in universal human rights.

    This is the great project of the human condition. And it is this project that is our hope. And it is in this project that we have faith. And it is this project that will realize that which we have been struggling for for 200,000 years.

    Sure, we bocome tired and cynical. But hope springs eternal.

    So we should encourage ourselves by considering what liberal democracy has already achieved, from the abolition of institutional slavery by the House of Commons in 1833, to the emancipation of women in the West in the 20th Century, to the prosecution of child sexual abuse in our Criminal Courts in the last 20 years.

    So liberal democracy has succeeded in limiting power over slaves, women and children in the West without resorting to mass murder or dictatorship. This is an extraordinary achievement.

    Much needs to be done and we are on our way. And when we become tired, we have a little rest then continue.

    La lutte continue.

    Celtic I think (does that count as a racial group?). One side of my family originally came from Scotland way back, and the other side came from Ireland way back. There may've been a few anglo-saxons thrown into the mix since arriving on these harsh shores. I doubt there were any other races entering the family gene pool in the last 150 years or so given the polite, comfortable, affable racism displayed by my grandparents.

    My parents both said that the only exposure they had to garlic growing up in country Western Australia was in the smell given off by the Italian kids.

    Approximately:
    - 40% German, from my Dad's parents
    - 25% Welsh, from my Mom's dad
    - 20% Unspecified British, probably English Anglo, from my Mom's mom
    - 15% Unknown, because I'm not 100% sure about either of my grandmothers.

    I'm pretty much your standard White Boy.

    My father is 3/4 Scottish, part Native American, and part Norwegian.

    My mother is 100% Scottish.

    I have a Norse name- Kristian Leif.

    I am almost 100% Scottish.

    And damn proud ter be!

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
